Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

if you know what an IPA is, then you’ll love the hoppiness in this.

Canned 16th of June. Aroma of pine, resin, caramel, orange, tangerine. Pours clear golden with a one finger off white head. Taste is medium bitter and medium to lightly sweet. Resiny and grapefruity bitterness, bready and caramel sweetness. Nice medium body, sticky on the lips, average to soft carbonation, resinous and grapefruity finish. Iconic and very solid IPA.

TychoJames (1003) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2016
Burk systembolaget. Berlinbryggd. Orangegul vätska. Fet humledoft. Barr, citrus och lite russin. Krafull bas i smaken med mycket beska. Citrus, barr, spannmål och hö. En ipa åt det tyngre och maltigare hållet snarare än frisk och fruktig.
